Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part one

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is the final book in the series and recently the movie was release, well the first part was anyway.  The second part comes out on the 15th of July.  The second will be released both in 2D and 3D, unlike the first part which was only 2D.

As a fan of the books it’s only natural that I had expectations of how good the film would be, unfortunately the movie did not meet these expectations.  Since one book is being split into two movies you’d think that it wouldn’t feel rushed, yet somehow it did.  Actually this may sound impossible, but even though it seemed rushed it was also really boring at times.  A possible reason for that was the dull, depressing tone of the film, with almost all of the comic relief being removed early on.

Sorry casual movie goers, this movie isn’t for you.  There is no time wasted on catching up the viewers who had any contact with the Harry Potter world since the last film was in cinemas.  In fact there is a lot of stuff that you probably won’t understand unless you’ve read the books, don’t worry though, if you can ignore all of the characters you don’t know, which most people can, then you’ll be able to follow the story.

Just want to make myself clear, I’m not saying that it was a completely horrible film, no it just did not meet the high expectations that were set by the book.  I do recommend seeing it if you’re a fan of the series, as I strongly belief that the second one will be better.  They left so much of the good stuff for part two and with a bit of luck they won’t mess it up.

Comment and vote below, whether or not you agree with me I would love to hear your opinions.

    They never explained properly that there is a taboo on the name Voldemort.
    Must’ve been very confusing for someone who hasn’t read the books that two Death Eaters just randomly found them in a cafe in a huge city like London.
